Hymns Of The Apostolic Church by John Brownlie

he philanthropia tou Patros.

tr., John Brownlie

7.6.7.6.8.8

I

The pity of the Father,

The kindness of the Son,

The comfort of the Spirit, --

Immortal Three in One;

All high and low, in heaven and earth,

Proclaim in songs of holy mirth.

II

When earth was dark and cheerless,

And mankind hopeless pined,

A thought of pity, peerless,

'Woke in the Father's mind;

And lo! the Word to man was given,

That spake to earth the thought of heaven.

III

The Son all condescending

Came from the heart of God,

And heaven and earth were blending,

Where'er the God-man trod;

He sought the erring souls to win

From straying in the ways of sin.

IV

And when the work was ended,

And Christ to God returned,

The Holy Ghost descended

In cloven tongues that burned;

He took the words of Christ again,

And spake them to the hearts of men.

V

Now unto God be glory,

And unto Christ the Son,

And to the Blessed Spirit --

Immortal Three in One;

All high and low in heaven and earth,

Proclaim in songs of holy mirth.
